My mission is to provide scientifically founded, holistic nutrition information to those seeking to improve their health and wellness. As an integrative Registered Dietary Nutritionist (RDN), I am dedicated to helping people improve their quality of life: whether its preventing or reversing obesity, helping you provide better meals for your family, or just the simple—yet sometimes difficult—goal of waking up feeling better every day, I know I can help.
There’s no secret behind health, just science. Let me break it down for you.
What is an Integrative Registered Dietitian Nutritionist?
An integrative Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) uses a holistic approach focused on individualized care to achieve optimal health, healing, and wellness. Integrative and functional medicine seeks to find and treat the root cause of disease, not manage the symptoms. Internal factors like genetic predisposition and physiology, as well as external factors such as environmental (physical and social) impact, are taken into consideration in order to assess the intervention and treatment.
Dietitians may call themselves nutritionists but not all nutritionists are dietitians. Becoming an RDN not only requires years of education, but annual certifications, too, to ensure that we are well-versed in the latest research. Importantly, an RDN is someone who can practice medical nutrition therapy (MNT). MNT includes the clinical, metabolic, and systemic manifestations of acute and chronic disease. The RDN credential can only be used by dietetic professionals who are currently authorized by the Commission on Accreditation for Dietetics Education, the credentialing agency for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The RDN credential is a legally protected title.
